Album Review

She may be the daughter of a reverend, but Tori Amos never seemed the likeliest candidate for a Christmas album; she might sing about "God", but her music always seemed secular and never seasonal, but in a year that brought holiday albums by Bob Dylan and Sting, it makes perfect sense that Tori should deliver one, too. Amos' entry, Midwinter Graces, may be as unlikely as Dylan's, but it's closer in tenor to Sting's: it captures the wintriness of the season. Tori reworks many familiar carols, tweaking lyrics and pushing them together into a medley, so they sound quite similar to the newly written tunes that comprise the rest of the record. Thanks to some familiar melodies, it can sometimes seem seasonally appropriate, but it always seems purely Tori.

Customer Reviews

Actually very good

Amos has produced a couple of Christmas based records in the past. Covers of "Little drummer boy" "Have yourself a merry Christmas" as well as the original "Purple people (Christmas in space)" have all had that special Tori magic. However I still had some trepidation over a full record of Christmas inspired music fearing it might be cheesy and slip into Holiday special territory mode. How wrong I was to doubt the musician who has taken me to some amazing emotional places over the years. And again she does it once more. The album is stark, rich and simply beautiful. It's very odd to find oneself chanting "Star of Wonder" at the top of my voice but it is simply a Tori classic single.

Ever evolving

This is simply beautiful. A very impressive album that has obviously had a great level of effort put into it. How and where does Tori and her team find the time to do this? Overall - Truly artistic, and something to be shared even with listeners outside Tori's cult fan base. Star of Wonder is AMAZING.

Midwinter aces!

These unusual intrepetations of traditional Christmas songs are amazing. My favourates are Holly, Ivy and Rose, Harps of Gold and A silent Night with You. If you fancy some eccentric Tori tunes for the festive season then this will do the trick nicely!

Tori Amos (born Myra Ellen Amos) was one of several female singer/songwriters who combined the stark, lyrical attack of alternative rock with a distinctly '70s musical approach, creating music that fell between the orchestrated meditations of Kate Bush and the stripped-down poetics of Joni Mitchell. In addition, she revived the singer/songwriter traditions of the '70s while re-establishing the piano as a rock & roll instrument. With her 1992 album Little Earthquakes, Amos built a dedicated following...
